Beamhurst Stables and Manège
This project involved the construction of new stables and a manège adjacent to a country house in Beamhurst, Uttoxeter. The stable block was constructed in reclaimed brick and roof tiles, clad in cedar and provides 4 stables, tack room, feed room and wash box. Each stable has rubber floors to enhance the comfort of the horses. The manège has special acti-flex surfacing manufactured by Martin Collins. The drainage from this area was particularly extensive to achieve a well-drained sub-base to prevent water logging in what was previously a very water-logged site due to the high water table.
- Terrible weather conditions during one of the coldest and wettest winters for many years.
- High water table
The client on this project was delighted with the end result which is of the highest standard for this type of development. The quality of the end product is exceptional and the negotiated open book approach to procurement gave the client the knowledge that her money was spent properly, achieving demonstrable value for money. Ted the horse, one of four living there, was especially pleased with his new home.
